Before you begin with a skincare process, it is important to figure out your skin type.
While most brides have planned a checklist of things to do before the D-day, many may not be aware that incorrect skincare reigmen may lead to last-minute breakouts or skin allergies. Therefore, it becomes important to pay attention to one’s skincare routine, specially closer to the wedding date.
Here is a skincare routine that brides should include in their routine, at least two months before the wedding day.
1. Set a skincare procedure according to your skin type: cleansing, toning, moisturising, use of sunscreen, exfoliation and a night regime.
2. Regular hydration sets the tone for attaining the perfect glow. Dry or flaky skin could lead to cakey make-up. So, before the winters hit and actually suck the life out of your skin, begin moisturizing your skin regularly. Cleansing and toning are sifnificant to get that perfect glow. Wash your face with a herbal face wash and follow it up with some toning with rose water and moisturising.
3. Eat a healthy balanced diet with loads of antioxidants. Start drinking green tea, willingly every day. Not only can this help with weight loss — alongside a good diet and exercise regime, but many people affirm by its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to help brighten the skin and reduce acne.
4. Hydrate well; drink at least 3-3.5 litres of water everyday. Water helps to get dispose off toxins from the body.
5. At least six-eight hours of continual sleep is a must. One can keep cut slices of cucumber or potato to fight the dark circles.
6. If you are dieting, remember to take a good multi-vitamin supplement as well. If you aren’t absorbing the right amount of nutrients as per your bodily needs, it will show on your hair, skin and nails. Omega oils are also great for your skin and body.
7. Always remember to remove make-up before going to bed.
8. There’s going to be a lot of focus on your hands on your big day. So massage sweet almond oil into your hands and nails on a daily basis, and by your big day your nails will be stronger and your hands will be super soft.
9. Bridal make-up starts with good skin – no foundation will look perfect without a smooth, exfoliated base. Once you’ve got your skincare regime perfected, try a matte primer to keep your foundation on for longer and to keep oil at bay.
10. Finally, don’t forget your lips. Wear a good quality lip balm and re-apply regularly throughout the day. Do this for at least a week before your wedding and your lips will be beautifully soft and smooth.
